Nobidy cares Oper ..

Isn't that special


Oprah - like, who cares?
If President Obama needed any more indication of how much his public support has eroded, he need look no further than a recent memorandum of sorts published in the New York Times by former President Bill Clinton​’s pollster, Stanley Greenberg​.


  • “Voters feel ever more estranged from government—and they associate Democrats with government.”
  • “If they are to win trust, and votes, Democrats must show they are as determined as the Tea Party movement to change the rules of the game."
  • “This distrust of government and politicians is unfolding as a full-blown crisis of legitimacy [and] sidelines Democrats and liberalism."
  • Greenberg says that his public opinion research now reveals that voters believe, “Government rushes to help the irresponsible and does little for the responsible."
  • To win, Democrats must “advocate policies that would control the borders and address problems of undocumented workers,” and voters want to “see strong enforcement at the border and in the workplace, and the expulsion of troublesome undocumented immigrants."
  • “Finally, progressives have to be serious about reducing the country’s long-term deficits” because “the deficit matters to people and has real meaning and consequences.”  [Full Pleasantries]

That won't be hard, pretending he's something else he's not.  By the time the Donk media is finished, Obama will occupy the Milton Friedman Chair at the University of Chicago,  as a hobby.


I met a fairy today ...

I met a fairy today ...


I met a fairy today that said she would grant me one wish.

"I want to live forever," I said.

"Sorry," said the fairy "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that!

"Fine," I said, "then I want to die after Congress gets their heads out of their asses!"

"You crafty bastard," said the fairy.

More Medicare Cuts*
*Well, not really. A primer on the debt deal's health-care bookkeeping.


Under the terms of the deal, the 12-member joint select committee is supposed to reduce the 10-year deficit another $1.5 trillion by November. If it doesn't, or if Congress rejects or Mr. Obama vetoes the package, spending would be cut by $1.2 trillion automatically, including 2% across-the-board cuts to all Medicare providers. Benefit cuts and cost-sharing for seniors are excluded. [full]
Obamacare

Listening to Rush who just discussed today's WSJ editorial.   About how the WSJ, who applauded the debt  deal, just figured something out. If the select committee (dear God) deadlocks, and they will on everything, Medicare cuts will come from providers.  Not recipients, providers.  So, while Obamacare plops 40 million new people onto Medicare, the only reductions will be levied against those who are expected to treat them.

Palin: ‘I do not have respect’ for Romney’s debt-deal performance


Sarah Palin knocked presidential candidate Mitt Romney for waiting until the debt-ceiling compromise was a “done deal” before speaking out against it.

“Bless his heart, I have respect for Mitt Romney, but I do not have respect for what he has done through this debt increase debate,” she said Tuesday night in a Fox News interview.

Krauthammer slams Tea Party attackers’ ‘lack of intelligence’


Call Me Tater Tot

In the aftermath of the debt ceiling deal struck between congressional Republicans, congressional Democrats and the White House, concessions made by Democrats have caused some on the left to lash out at the Tea Party. But where is this show of anger — with epithets like “hostage takers,” “terrorists” and “thugs” flying around — coming from?

Despite Krauthammer’s low regard for the Tea Party’s left-wing detractors, O’Reilly insisted talking points were still circulating, which suggested a concerted effort. Krauthammer dismissed that notion.

“Look, what it means to me is you’ve got people with no intelligence, no originality, no imagination,” he said. “They are sputtering. They have lost. No arguments. What do they do? They want ad hominems. They want epithets. So, somebody uses it on the air — ‘Ah ha, that’s a good one. I’ll use it.’ I don’t credit them [with] the intelligence or the sort of, what it takes to put together a conspiracy.”

Tarred, Baby, as "Racist"

That's Racist
Racially tinged remarks prompt hasty backtracking


For those who still think the election of Barack Obama as the nation’s first African American president has ushered in the era of post-racial politics, consider the racially loaded terms "tar baby" and "boy."

Both slurs have returned to the political arena, forcing those uttering them — a sitting congressman and a prominent commentator who tried to become president himself — to quickly backtrack and explain the usage.

Amid the fiercely partisan battles over raising the debt ceiling, Colorado Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn took to the airwaves last week to criticize Obama’s policies, infelicitously comparing them to a “tar baby.”  The tar baby is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br'er Rabbit in the second of the Uncle Remus stories.  LATIMES



I guess I better not be calling this "Woman washing off road tar"

How about

Employee Free Choice Act becoming law - the Obama way


Where the current administration has failed to persuade Congress to adopt its legislative agenda, time and again, it has waived its regulatory wand and enacted the failed "legislation" as "regulation."

Magically, it becomes the law of the land.


EARLIER ....

-
In 2010, organized labor condemned the bipartisan vote in the United States Senate that killed the Employee Free Choice Act.

Employees, prematurely, celebrated the fact that their right to a secret ballot in elections determining union representation was secure. 

The Canada Free Press's  50 Impeachable Crimes and Counting  is really just a laundry list of known Obama criminal activity since he left his mother's (if she was his mother) womb.  The American Patriot's list is more targeted.    The problem is that impeachment is a political act.  I can't for the life of me see  congressional Republicans—  they who in an act of sheer stupidity (and some cowardice) just condemned us to us Third World status and a second Great Depression,  have the guts.  Democrats are systemically corrupt,  and can no longer be expected to display fealty to anything but party doctrine.  Obama is clearly  a not so nascent dictator.  Solution?  I have a red button in my brain.  I onanistically press it constantly.  It feels good, but just for an instant.

It was good for me. You?

MSNBC's Resident Psycho-Babblest and Martin Beshir Are F'n NUTS

DERANGED
The Ultimate Horror Comes From Within

The Ultimate Horroe Comes From Within

MSNBC BASHIR: What is the effect giving people their way all of the time? How does it shape our thinking behavior if by being adamant and dogmatic we get our way?

Psycho-Babblest:  Well, the way I think about it is they are pursuing goals that can't be achieved. It's sort of like a child who has some kind of fantasy, and they keep asking you to give them things to acquire that, but it's impossible to arrive at the goal that they want. The idyllic paths that they are pursuing probably never existed and certainly not something we can reach right now.

MSNBC BASHIR: So you're saying that they are delusional about the past and adamant about the future?

Psycho-Babblest: They are adamant about achieving something that's unachievable, which reminds us of a couple of things. it reminds us of delusion and psychosis. It reminds us of addiction because addicts are seeking something that they can't have. They want a state of happiness or nirvana that can't be achieved except through an artificial substance and reminds us of the Norway situation, when people are thwarted at obtaining something they can't, have they often strike out and Norway is one kind of example to one kind of reaction to that kind of a frustration.

MSNBC BASHIR: But going back to the Tea Party in this country. Do you think that having achieved their goal, no new taxes. instead of this actually making them think about compromise in the future? It's actually simply going to harden them so this kind of battle this, kind of standoff, this kind of face-off is just going to become routine in Washington.

Psycho-Babblest:  Well, i'm looking at one beyond. they want no new taxes because they seek some kind of idyllic past.
